In certain circumstances, your child may need more care than our office can provide. Such examples may include head trauma, dehydration, respiratory distress, seizures, etc. In these circumstances, it is best to seek care immediately. If you feel your child needs emergent care, calling our office or walking in will only delay getting him the care he needs. St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital on MLK has an excellent pediatric ER, and we recommend choosing this ER for your child’s emergency care when possible.
